I don't know how up to date the backup machine needs to be, but there
are security exit points in the system for Change/Create/Delete/Restore
of *USRPRFs which are there to simplify maintenance of a network of
systems when synchronization is important.  These exits can be found in
the Security Exit Programs chapter of the System API Reference.

Related to this there are also the Retrieve Encrypted User Password
(QSYRUPWD) and Set Encrypted User Password (QSYSUPWD) APIs to allow
users to more easily mirror user profile activity on a second system
(as the standard security retrieve APIs that would typically be used
in conjunction with the above exits do not return the password).

The above would not be as "easy" as periodically Saving/Restoring the
profiles but would certainly allow you to automate things rather nicely
(which could make it "easy" in the future).
